It’s the end of November and for everyone in the USA this means it’s Turkey season! To give thanks for things in your everyday life is a nice thing and one of the things we like is wine. In honor of our American friends we have found a fine red from California which will be great with a good Turkey dinner.
Rod Strong was among the first modern wine pioneers with a vision to plant Pinot Noir in the Russian River Valley. In 1968, he planted the heritage River East Vineyard in the alluvial clay-loam soils adjacent to the winery in Healdsburg. Today the Russian River Valley is well established as one of the premier Pinot Noir growing regions in the world.

Lovely aromas of red fruit, floral and earth. A soft and silky texture, on the palate dark cherry, cranberry, and baking spice characteristics shine through with balance, acidity and a nice lingering finish. This medium bodied wine was aged for 14 months in small French oak barrels, which added a hint of toasty vanilla and spice complexity.
In addition to the traditional Turkey, you can enjoy this Pinot Noir with charcuterie, wild mushroom risotto, grilled pork tenderloin.
